HHW: Tell our readers about the exciting charity work you’ve been involved in.
FLO RIDA: I have a charity called Big Dreams for Kids. During the holidays, we always support the kids, but even beyond that, we have activities such as the Florida Youth Football League and it’s our third year. We’ve been the number one league and in January, we actually took the kids out to Los Angeles. Some kids had never been on flights ever in life — we love putting smiles on other people’s faces and just giving back. In LA, Snoop embraced the kids, so we went out there, played some games and in return they’re actually supposed to come out here and play us real soon.
HHW: Of course Snoop has headed a very successful youth football league on the West Coast for years now, but who’s more competitive on the field?
FLO RIDA: I’d say both of us are very, very competitive. Snoop is a sports fanatic and I am, too. I grew up with a basketball court, playing football in the backyard and things like that. I’m more laid back. I might not talk very much, but you’ll get dunked on! My actions speak louder than my words. Snoop is out there on the field with the kids when the game’s going on, and I really don’t do that, but hey — it’s all good.
HHW: You’re doing so much in the business and charity world. Is Flo still making time for the music?
FLO RIDA: I’m recording as well, so I’ll hit the gym and do what I gotta do. I’ve been out in Los Angeles recording my album, Perfect Ten. Shot out to my man Pitbull for the record, “Can’t Believe It.” I got a record called, “How I Feel” out … and yeah, we’ll be dropping the album sometime in the summer and we got some secrets with some other artists from different genres that’s gonna be on the album that I’m very, very excited about. I’m always finding time for the music, man. That’s what got me in this position. We can never forget about that.
